How long can a man survive in space without a space suit?

    Because of the vacuum in space, without a pressurized environment massive decompression of liquids and bodily tissues would be instantaneous. This would immediately result in death.

    Basically, a person in space without a space suit will die after 15 seconds to 1 minute maximum.

    There is no oxygen so a person would not be able to breathe. Also, since there is no air pressure body fluids would no longer say in a liquid form, but begin to “boil”; the boiling process would cause fluids to lose their heat and freeze before evaporating (this takes about 30 seconds).

    Tissues will expand (although they will not explode) since there is no air pressure.

    Temperatures in space range from 248 degrees Fahrenheit to -148 degrees Fahrenheit.
